Nighthawk was the vigilante personality of Hannibal Hawkes. When traveling the old west, Hawkes posed as a traveling repairman. Nighthawk and his on-again off-again partner, Cinnamon, are past lives of Carter and Shiera Hall (Hawkman and Hawkgirl). The pair also teamed with with Bat Lash and other heroes of the time to form the Rough Bunch.
